Biocept KRAS Liquid Biopsy Test
Biocept has launched a new blood-based KRAS mutation test to help physicians identify patients who might benefit from currently available targeted therapies. According to the company the high sensitivity of its technology could also allow the test to be used for monitoring patients' responses to treatment and the progression of their disease during the course of therapy.
The quantitative Target Selector KRAS assay joins Biocept's existing portfolio of liquid biopsy tests for melanoma, breast, lung and gastric cancer biomarkers. The firm's platform analyzes circulating tumor DNA in circulating tumor cells and plasma.
